Jotachar 1709

Product description
This is a two component solvent free amine cured 100% solids epoxy intumescent coating. Specially designed as
an intumescent coating to provide fire protection for steel in hydrocarbon pool fires for different types of
structures and equipment. No additional reinforcing mesh is required. To be used as mid coat as part of a
complete system in atmospheric environments. Suitable on approved primers on carbon steel, hot dipped
galvanised steel and stainless steel substrates.

Typical use
Typically used in the oil, gas and energy industries. Suitable in both offshore and onshore environments for the
passive fire protection of structural carbon steel, stainless steel, GRP and concrete.
In line with all epoxy intumescent technologies, the product is suitable for use on pipe work, vessels or
equipment operating up to 80 °C. At higher service temperatures, between 80 °C - 150 °C, Jotatherm TB550
should be used as thermal syntactic insulation between substrate and Jotachar or as thermal insulation on top of
Jotachar for atmospheric heat radiation.
Please contact your local sales representative for more information.

Jotachar 1709

Typical recommended specification range

Dry film thickness:


5 - 22 mm (dependent upon the fire case and project specific requirements)

Theoretical spreading rate:


1 kg of Jotachar 1709 will cover 1 m² per 1 mm applied (based on plural component spray)

Typical first coat thickness achievable is 5.5 mm.


Subsequent coats of up to 10 mm can be applied in a continuous application process, typically carried out after
60 minutes dependent on ambient conditions.
High film build can be achieved dependent upon steelwork configuration, geometry, ambient conditions, pump
type and set up as well as primer used.
Maximum DFT is the thickness at which the system can be applied without sagging or slumping.

Surface preparation
To secure lasting adhesion to the subsequent product all surfaces shall be clean, dry and free from any
contamination.

Thinner/Cleaning solvent
Thinner: Jotun Thinner No. 7 / Jotun Thinner No. 17

Thinning max.: 5 %

Thinning is typically 2-3 % by volume for modified airless spray and manual application.
For rolling, use Jotun Thinner No. 7 or Jotun Thinner No. 17.
Cleaning solvent: Jotun Thinner No. 7

Guiding data for airless spray


Nozzle tip (inch/1000): 31-41
Pressure at nozzle (minimum): 200 bar/2900 psi

Drying and Curing time


Substrate temperature 5 °C 15 °C 23 °C 40 °C

Surface (touch) dry 6h 3h 1 h 1 h


Walk-on-dry 24 h 12 h 6 h 3 h
Dry to over coat, minimum 6h 3h 2 h 1 h
Dried/cured for service 24 h 12 h 6 h 3 h

For maximum overcoating intervals, refer to the Application Guide (AG) for this product.

Drying and curing times are determined under controlled temperatures and relative humidity below 85 %, and
at average of the DFT range for the product.

Surface (touch) dry: The state of drying when slight pressure with a finger does not leave an imprint or reveal
tackiness.

Walk-on-dry: Minimum time before the coating can tolerate normal foot traffic without permanent marks,
imprints or other physical damage.

Dry to over coat, minimum: The shortest time allowed before the next coat can be applied.

Dried/cured for service: Minimum time before the coating can be permanently exposed to the intended
environment/medium.

Induction time and Pot life


Paint temperature 15 °C 23 °C

Pot life 45 min 40 min

The given figures are for trowel and roller workability.


Working pot life is not applicable for plural airless spray application as the material is mixed at the spray gun
during application. For single leg airless spray and manual application, mixed material should be applied with
minimum delay. Due to exothermic reaction, the larger the volume of mixed material, the shorter the pot life
will be.
